Okay, this is supposed to be a pear tart. But, I only had apples on hand, forgetting to pick up pears at the store. However, we arent reeaally pear people. So, it all worked out. YAY!
The recipe for this week was picked by Dorie herself. She is our host this week. If you had told me last year at this time that Id be heading a group of nearly 400 people who ALL adore Dorie’s Baking From My Home to Yours, I would have laughed my ass off. Oh how much can change in a year. I have made such great friends in the past year while leading this group. And it wouldnt be right of me to celebrate TWD’s 1 Year Anniversary without thanking them. Nikki, Clara, Holly, Jaime, Caitlin, Erin and Shari. You guys have been around for the long haul, which makes me adore you all. You’ve helped me more than I could ever really tell you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And of course I need to thank Dorie. She has been so incredible to not only me, but the entire group. I am so grateful her support, kindness and assistance as we continue to bake our way through her fab book.
I loved this tart. I loved it. I am ashamed to say that I ate more than I would admit. Its that tasty. The only change I made was using apples rather than pears. I followed the rest of the recipe to a T. It was rather simple to make, assemble and eat. I will definitely make this tart again and again. And I am so thankful that Dorie chose it, because I can honestly say I would not have made it otherwise! I love this group for that very reason.
Happy Anniversary to all my fellow TWD bakers! Thanks for all you do to make this group such a fun hobby. You can check out all the tarts from the TWD blogroll. And please go check out Dorie’s blog for the recipe. Its so worth it. Thanks again Dorie for everything!!!
